Found 12th Nov 2014
Compared to the Rolex Submariner in looks and somtimes mistaken for it Been looking for a new watch for a while and according to a lot of watch forums, this seems to be a good watch and for under £100 cant be bad. £120+ everywhere else.

Plenty of positive reviews out there

The real deal! It’s manly and rugged, yet sophisticated enough to charm a lady. Neither too light, nor too heavy, the 23 Jewels Seiko Automatic stands up to lots of wear and tear and is a choice for professionals. It’s large, but not extra-large and the size has stood the test of time.

Stainless Steel Case
Stainless Steel Bracelet
Movement: Automatic
Calibre: 7S36 (23 Jewels)
Crystal: Hardlex crystal
Bezel: Unidirectional

Bond has actually worn Seikos on several outings. (And Omegas, Breitlings, Rolex, Tag, Longines, Hamilton, ...)

Seiko 5 watches are all very good. Very underrated.

I had never heard of this seller (website) until a few weeks back when someone posted another deal they had. They certainly seem to have some fantastic deals, well worth a look.

Great website - I've had a couple of watches from them now.

I'll stick with my omega thanks

I ordered a Seiko from them on a Saturday evening and it arrived on the following Monday morning from Singapore. Great watch and fast delivery. Would definitely use them again.

Great website and great watches Have ordered from them plenty of times , highly recommended

quality watches - worth paying extra for - The seiko above is excellent for the money though , dont knock it until you've tried it - I have a Seiko diver for a daily wearer that cost just over £100 6 years ago . It has needed nothing in that time . My Seamaster is 11 years old and has needed servicing as it was gaining time . You win some and loose some . If I had to rely on one brand , it would be Seiko .

I bought a dive watch recently; an invicta 8926; but if I had the choice again I would have gone for one of these, that really is a beautiful watch!
Voted hot

As divers go I have a Planet ocean, A CW C60 but also a 72S6-0020 Seiko. Why? Because I would not forgive myself if I smashed one of my Omegas or a decent during daily chores which I frequently do (monumentally clumsy)

Have used them in the past, good website to buy from.

Id keep it to yourself that you bought an Invicta otherwise they might see you coming .

I'd personally spend a little extra for an SKX007,SKX009,SKX011. While the 5's are great value, the SKX's are pure classics that no watch enthusiast would be without at least one.

Is this from a UK site? If not there will be the import costs, won't there?

Creation ship from singapore, but all my watches from them have been marked at $20 'Measuring Equipment'.

Good find

This is not a Dive watch

How can I guarantee that the product is genuine? Interested, a nice watch.

They're probably good FAKES!

Take it to your local Seiko dealer for confirmation. I know loads of folk who have bought from CW; never had any problems.

Ah, there's always one.

Automatics - OK until you forget to wear it for a day, then you wish you'd bought a watch with batteries in.

I have this very watch, bought from this seller 12 months ago. fantastic looking watch. I actually set out to buy an omega, but stories of expensive services put me off - bought this instead and haven't looked back.

nice movement, looks good against a short or casual, it's my daily watch. only thing to note - it doesn't have a locking crown. In reality this is not an issue

Really? I tend to spend 20 seconds setting the right time, before reminding myself that I will never have to pay a penny for battery replacement and repressurisation.

That seems like a more sensible option to me than substituting a superior piece of kit for an inferior one.

Charm a lady? One of these plus the old lynx and I'm all set.

Hot though, seiko make decent watches

When fully running the movement in these can last upto 40 hours if left on your side table unused, so even if you forget for the day it will still be ok the next

Bought a seiko orange monster from these last week, delivered in 4 days by Dhl with no import charges, marked up as $20 measuring equipment. 100% genuine

Just bought this very watch a few weeks ago for £118, so this is a hot deal. Turned out to be a third the cost of getting my eight year old Breitling serviced, and it certainly keeps better time, so an easy decision. Not quite the same weight and chunkiness, but still robust enough for everyday use and still feels good quality.

Very happy with it so far.

Great looking watch!

I'll stick with my calculator casio thanks

Although don't you have to spend a fortune getting automatics serviced? I'll stick with solar powered and time set by radio signal. The capacitor should be good for 20 years apparently.
